Graphics is another area where it's simply too difficult to generalize. As with RAM, most graphics cards can be overclocked by at least a small amount.

To figure out which cards will provide the best gains from overclocking you'll have to ask dozens of experts - and you can find them in our Forumz!

With general concepts and basic details exposed, it's time to get really friendly with a platform. In part three of this series we'll walk through a specific overclocking attempt, and with any luck we might find some challenging hardware to further clarify the process.
